WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Bond was set at $100,000 for a man accused of running a brothel out of a Warren house.
A not guilty plea was entered on behalf of 62-year-old Daniel Blasco, who is facing a felony promoting prostitution charge.
He was arrested Monday after a lengthy investigation by the Warren Police Department. In January, a woman reported being held against her will and forced into prostitution at the Kenilworth Avenue home.
Detectives said Blasco had a stripper pole inside the house and was pimping women out on sites like Backpage.com, sometimes giving them drugs.
A nuisance abatement hearing to determine what will happen to the house is scheduled for September 27. The city currently has a temporary restraining order barring people from returning there.
